Name: The Rise and Fall of Michigan Public Education – and What We Must Do to Rise Again
Date: October 17, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Event Description:
John C. Austin will present his ideas about improving public education in Michigan. John recently completed 16 years of elected service on the Michigan State Board of Education from 2001-2017. He served his last 6 years as President. Austin directs the Michigan Economic Center, a center for ideas and network-building to advance Michigan’s economic transformation. In 2015, Austin brought together the state’s business, labor, education, higher education, and bi-partisan legislators to form the Michigan Higher Education Attainment Roundtable (HEART) to implement a new broadly-supported roadmap to reduce higher education cost, help more citizens - young and old - access a higher education, and put Michigan where it belongs among the best educated states in the country. Austin received his Master’s in Public Administration from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, and a Bachelor’s from Swarthmore College in Economics & Political Science, with High Honors and Phi Beta Kappa.
